New bombshell: 5-month gap in Hillary emails

WASHINGTON – There are gaps totaling five months in the Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department, the watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Monday morning.

The revelation emerged after a court ordered the release of State Department documents as part of Judicial Watch’s effort to obtain Clinton emails under the Freedom of Information Act.

Emails sent and received by Clinton on her private server are missing over periods totaling five months, beginning when she took office as secretary of state in 2009.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the gaps indicate Clinton lied under oath when she said all her emails had been turned over, and it suggested government officials had not turned over everything they were required to deliver.

Fitton said other State Department officials, including the one in charge of email production, Patrick Kennedy, previously had been informed of the five-month gap.

The gap in emails received by Clinton run from Jan. 21, 2009, when she became secretary of state, to March 17, 2009. The gaps in emails sent by Clinton from from Jan. 21, 2009, to April 12, 2009, and from Dec. 30, 2012, to Feb. 1, 2013.

Judicial Watch said the revelation of the email gap casts doubt on whether Clinton told the truth when she declared under oath last month, “I have directed that all of my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or potentially were federal records be provided to the Department of State.”

Judicial Watch obtained that statement, made in response to a court order, in separate FOIA litigation.

The announcement of the email gap was made at an event in which many of the best minds in Washington came together to discuss what to do about the many crises plaguing the country during the Obama era.

Judicial Watch is holding a day-long “Leadership Summit on Washington Corruption and the Transparency Crisis.”

Judicial Watch has been in the forefront of the legal battle to obtain Clinton’s emails and State Department documents concerning the former secretary of state’s use of a private server to conduct all of her official business.

Contrary to her denials, government inspectors revealed Clinton did have classified information on her private server, which security experts say was especially vulnerable to hacking by foreign intelligence agencies.

The FBI is investigating Clinton’s use of the server and trying to retrieve 30,000 emails she deleted after her own staff deemed them personal correspondence.

The State Department said it had received approximately “60,00-70,000 pages of email correspondence printed to paper and stored in twelve bankers boxes,” which are “the only comprehensive set of Secretary Clinton’s email correspondence.”

But the department was concerned there were other Clinton emails that would not be found.

“However, of the sample examined, many of the emails were from Secretary Clinton’s personal email account to official Department email accounts of her staff. Emails originating from Secretary Clinton’s personal email account would only be captured by Department systems when they came to an official Department email account, i.e., they would be captured only in the email accounts of those recipients. Secretary Clinton’s staff no longer work at the Department, and the status of the email accounts of Secretary Clinton’s staff (and other Department recipients) is unknown at this time.”

Fitton said one State Department official indicated she did not want a written record of the inquiry into Clinton’s emails, noting an email in which she said she preferred to discuss the matter on the phone.

Every email should have been turned over

Fitton also said that among the newly obtained documents is an internal appraisal by the State Department which determined that none of Clinton’s emails should have been excluded for examination as to whether they were personal or government business.

The document, titled “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Email Appraisal Report,” dated Feb. 9, 2015, concluded: “As the person holding the highest level job in the Department, any email message maintained by or for the immediate use of the secretary of state is ‘appropriate for preservation.’ This record series cannot be considered personal papers based on the definition of a record in 44 U.S.C. 3301 or Department policy found in 5 FAM 443.”

All of Clinton’s emails should have been turned over to the government for review, Fitton said.

That determination by the State Department is significant, because Clinton said she deleted more than 30,000 emails that her own staff had determined were personal.

Fitton emphasized that none of the Clinton emails were made public voluntarily but were disclosed as the result of litigation.

He compared the five-month Clinton email gap to the infamous 18-minute gap in the audio tapes turned over to Watergate investigators by President Nixon.

The email gap was revealed in documents obtained under court order in the FOIA lawsuit against the Department of State originally filed by Judicial Watch on May 6, 2013.

The documents also revealed for the first time the private email account that top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills apparently used to conduct government business, [email protected]

Classified info

The documents also show the State Department had concerns months ago about classified information in Clinton’s emails.

A letter on March 3, 2015, to longtime Clinton attorney David Kendall said, “Please note that if Secretary Clinton wishes to release any document or portion thereof, the Department must approve such release and first review the document for information that may be protected from disclosuree for privilege, privacy or other reasons.”

Just last week, Justice Department lawyers told a federal judge they had no reason to suspect Clinton had failed to produce any emails requested by Congress or watchdog groups.

Monday’s revelation of the five-month gaps in emails turned over by Clinton would appear to cast doubt on the Justice Department’s assurance.

The State Department appraisal report that said Clinton should have turned over all emails, including the 30,000 she deleted, because they were deemed personal, also seemed to contradict the Justice Department.

Top Justice Department lawyers Benjamin Mizer and Elizabeth Shapiro said in papers filed in federal court Wednesday: “Because personal records are not subject to [the Freedom of Information Act], and State Department employees may delete messages they deem in their own discretion to be personal, plaintiff’s preservation argument reduces to an unsupported allegation that former Secretary Clinton might have mistakenly or intentionally deleted responsive agency records rather than personal records.”

‘Unprecedented assault’

Judicial Watch described the Monday event as a symposium that will “examine how the Obama administration’s corruption and abuse of power have undermined the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution.”

The group contended the nation is “in the midst of an unprecedented assault on its open records laws by the corrupt and secretive Obama administration and corrupt politicians like Hillary Clinton, an assault that we believe poses a serious threat to our country’s future.”

The event was divided into three sessions, with closing remarks and a question-and-answer period. The first session was “Clinton Corruption Challenge from Benghazi to Clinton Cash.”

Panelists:
Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president
John Fund, columnist for National Review Online and senior editor at the American Spectator
Joe diGenova, diGenova & Toensing
Steve Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart News
David Martosko – U.S. political editor for DailyMail.com

During the first panel, Fund called it ironic that Clinton began her career as a staffer on a House committee investigating the 18-minute gap in the Nixon tapes.

Fund recalled how her supervisor, a Democrat, had said it would only be a matter of time before the Nixonian traits she had learned would come back to haunt her.

The columnist also predicted that investigators would get to the bottom of the email scandal because, he quipped, “I happen to know that President Jarrett is not amused by the scandal – a reference to Obama’s top adviser, Valerie Jarrett.

DiGenova claimed Clinton wanted a private email server only to deny access to everyone who had a legal right to see her emails.

“If not for Judicial Watch, we would not be sitting here today,” he said.

DiGenova said Clinton “knew all of her electronic devices were not encrypted” so the suggestions she did not know that she would receive classified information was “ludicrous.”

“And she knew if she turned over everything she’d be dead meat.”

He added, “I know who has all of the emails – the NSA.”

DiGenova said every one of the emails would have been captured by the spy agency as part of a counter-intelligence program.

One phone call from the attorney general to the head of the NSA would have produced them all,” he said.

Fitton said he “guaranteed” all of Clinton’s emails were in the possession of her attorney, Kendall.

The second session was “Illegal Immigration Crisis: National Security, Job Security, Election Integrity and Public Safety.”

Panelists:
Chris Farrell, Judicial Watch director of research and investigations
Irene Garcia, Judicial Watch investigative reporter
Rep. Louis Gohmert, U.S. congressman, TX-1
Andrew C. McCarthy III, senior fellow at National Review Institute
Robert Popper, Judicial Watch senior attorney and head of Election Integrity Project
J. Christian Adams – president and general counsel of the Public Interest Legal Foundation

The final session: “The IRS Attack on Free Speech.”

Panelists:
Paul Orfanedes, Judicial Watch director of litigation
Ramona Cotca, Judicial Watch senior attorney
Cleta Mitchell, partner and political law attorney, Foley & Lardner LLP

There are some very bad things going on in Washington DC. Too bad we don't have a disgruntled FBI agent to let us know what is going on. We could use a deep throat now.

They'd be fried right now. Could be someone, or group, is waiting until after the election.

Our AG isn't being pressured by anyone at all. The NSA hasn't been brought up as a solution in front of a camera, IIRC.

This is so Nixon-esque. I do wonder if we will ever know what she's trying to hide. All we know for sure is that she's hiding something.

What a sleeze.

I believe in her official position as SOS she solicited donations from foreign countries with promises of future paybacks when she became president.

This will come to light if somehow she is forced out of the presidential race. Those that paid will step forward and want their money back.

That is why she CAN'T drop out on her own. If she doesn't win the presidency the sheet will hit the fan.

Simple. If she was a conservative both sides would be cooperating to have her removed from politics and face jail time. But since she's a dem, she'll skate.

She is hiding the negotiations with the terror groups that wanted the release of all the Gitmo prisoners, the only way to contact them was through a private server, took her a few months to get savvy on how to manage that stuff on her tablets......certainly could not be done through any .gov STATE Dept. accounts.....

so it was handled very discretely to arrange a phony kidnapping of the ambassador from an UNSECURED facility by whatever islamic group name....and then when the SEALS ignored the STAND DOWN orders, and killed SO MANY 'attackers' the islamics got pissed off and brought in more forces and killed all involved.....

Leaving NOBAMA with no realistic way to empty Gitmo......

AND SO THAT is the reason for the server subterfuge in the first place, and the obvious cover up of TREASON......


DARE anyone to refute what I just said/typed......???? thought not.....


OH, btw, I have some old contacts in the Wash DC region from various agencies.....I say no more......

I say, with good authority and proven research, that the emails hidden were about Benghazi. Emails about weapon sales to Syria. The deal went south and people were going to blow the whistle. Those people got killed. That is what happened. Think not, then do your research, like I did, and listen to people that worked for the White House, and CIA. She should be in prison.

Let's not forget that the White house and IRS have been ordered by a judge to turn over all emails requesting data from the IRS by the White house on citizens.

And the White house and IRS are refusing.

Why is it that the left have not demanded the transparency they were promised and required by law to get?

Liberals are hypocritical scum.

Very bad.

This Democrat system of government is "anarcho-tyranny": a combination of anarchy (in which legitimate government functions—like spying on the bad guys or punishing real criminals—are not performed) and tyranny (in which government performs illegitimate functions—like spying on the good guys or criminalizing innocent conduct like gun ownership and political dissent) like the IRS.

The result of anarcho-tyranny is that government swells in power, criminals are not controlled, and law-abiding citizens wind up being repressed by the state and attacked by thugs, political correctness, lies, the tools of the Democrat government.

I disagree, it's fascism, democrat fascism....the use of the state and all its tools to forward an agenda under the cloak of nationalism (in our case, the welfare/plantation state)...

It's anything but anarchy (the ultimate power of the individual) but I agree with you in the tyranny part, fascist tyranny not seen since hitler....
